When embedded systems software development and testing are constrained by the availability of target hardware and systems, the entire business faces problems. Issues include slow time to market, high capital and operating expenses, suboptimal quality management, and limited security testing. The pressure to support existing embedded systems across multiple hardware platforms places further stress on development, testing, and IT operations organizations.

This makes DevOps, agile development, and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) difficult or impossible to implement. But advances in hardware and system simulation have changed the entire picture. Read this paper to learn how Wind River Simics software enables developers and testers to work in virtual labs using software-based simulations of any target system.
